Castle Caso is still surrounded by walls and the urban, largely restored, has major architectural elements of high quality. Interesting is the dual gateway with covered area recently restored, the hinge between the old medieval town and the more modern buildings sprang up around the parish church of Santa Maria Assunta. This Romanesque church contains a cycle of frescoes with scenes of the Virgin painted in 1595 by the painter Peter Caesar, as well as four seventeenth-century paintings of the side altars. Inside the castle is the ancient oratory of San Giovanni Battista, transformed into the cellar of the parish house, which preserves important frescoes of the fifteenth century. At the end of the country, near the present cemetery, is the Shrine of Our Lady of Grace shrine built as an extension of country of the fifteenth century with the appearance of miraculous to a child of the place, Lady on horseback. The interior is decorated with frescoes dating ex-voto for the most part in the sixteenth century by John Spain and his school. Not far from the village, on the road to Gavelli, is the Romanesque church of Santa Cristina country. The interior of this church is completely covered with frescoes dating back to the votes from ex-XIV-XVI centuries and depicting the patron saints and biblical scenes, according to the simple popular language.

The mist adds mood, mystery and atmosphere. A superb high pov overlooking the characteristic hilltop villages of these parts with their tightly clustered stone houses. Good sharpness and soft pastel colors. The elongated c shape nicely leads the eye right around the image. Tfs!

se non sbaglio continua ad esserci la nebbia, ciò nonostante, sei riuscito a riprendere
al meglio questo antico borgo di provenienza castellana.
PS due o tre foto della terrazza???? Ma se ne hai fatte almeno un migliaio, le voglio vedere tutteeee ( su ELLA mi sono schiantato dal ridere)

Bonsoir, cher Silvio,
Ce petit village magnifiquement mis en image est d'une rare beauté.
De plus, l'arrière-plan dans la brume de nuages est un plus incontestable.

Hi Silvio, Those people in this city live in a paradise.....up above everything....even higher than the sky. Nice cloud background and the dense forests framed the houses wonderfully. Excellent POV and colours along with details. Thank for sharing

very nice the village that was found on the top of the hill with the fog especially on the backdrop,to makes the image even more effective. I like the beauty of this unique place as the excellent light and colour management of the image.

A different view from above of a medieval village. The clouds, or fog, provide a fine backdrop to the grey buildings on the ridge of the green hill. A very nicely arranged photo with fine light.

belissima vista che sembra presa da un aereo. Mi piace molto il dinamismo della composizione che accentua questa impressione. Il borgo e' situato in un ottimo contesto, i suoi dettagli sono chiari ed interessanti e spicca superbamente, illuminato da una luce forte e chiara. Affascinante lo sfondo nebbioso, molto gradevoli i colori naturali. Complimenti e grazie!
Tanti saluti e buon pomeriggio,

Attractive classical Gothic village a top the mountain, well maintained, varying architecture, and surrounded by landscape with a misty cloud backdrop.
Thanks for sharing,

this time its more of a smokey type of feeling and atmsophere.
if we look very closely, we can see people walking around, don't see any cars though.
great to see how the entire town is one solid color.
another terrific viewpoint.
